I just finished going through the errata ( for ASCE 7. No, I’m not whining that there are errata. I’m whining because:


  1. Based on when I bought the document, I shouldn’t have had so much errata. I bought it late last year. I’ve entered errata from January, 2006. I think it’s irresponsible for ASCE to sell a printed document with known errors.


  1. It would be nice if the document were in a ringed binder and the errata published in a way that one could merely swap pages. Is that too much to ask? Note that I didn’t say “Is that too much to ask considering the retail price of the document?”


Now for the question I should have asked before I went through this mess. How do I know that the errata I’ve just incorporated has been accepted into the CBC2007?

Bill, I agree with you, I bought my ASCE/SEI 7-05 early this year and and on the cover it states "Includes Supplement No.1 and Errata" , but the errata sheet 7-05pdf you mentioned are not included in the printing!!
